Haha, no. But films with lots of blood and gore are called often called gritty.

I'm fine with Grit otherwise, but I just can't see it used for healing purposes. Toughness seems more like a healing thing to me, but I'm not a native speaker.

Hardiness?

I haven't found an Estonian term for it either, if that's any consolation. :P

So what we're talking about is the term used in the wording of the document for a test of X + Y. We could always just say X + Y instead of coming up for a term. I guess I'm OK with Toughness, but it still has the old TROS (and other RPGs) connotations for me of soaking damage.

That was actually my preferred method, but I thought giving them names would blur the line between this mechanic and derived attributes a bit and make their use easier for the "veterans".

OK, well we can just have a small table in the document that says, for example:

Strength + Agility: Used for keeping your balance, holding your ground when struck by things, etc, etc...

Fewer terms means less to learn, right? Terms can be helpful, of course, but we can just let players decide how they'll refer to them.

That's my view, but Ian & Michael seemed to think new terms are easier to remember than these attribute combinations. I mean, we two have nWoD experience and we know how simple this actually becomes, but others are not convinced.

Yeah, I don't know what "Perception" is, but I know I should roll Wits + Composure when something's happening. :D
